Tony would the visible dash screws be black like the kits Jim did back in the day ? If so I'd be in for a set

Doug, yes they're black oxide. My spreadsheet is showing no overage on those, unfortunately.

I meant an entire kit for a 110 not just dash screws.

There are 2-3 on the backup list now. If there's continued interest I could probably put together a second smaller run, let me know if you're interested, thanks

McMaster Carr is now saying the last few pieces will ship on the 19th, so with any luck I can get these out the following Monday.

Thanks,
Tony

You are making it harder than it has to be. I worked for a place that sold small hardware and they used a scale.


Make a few piles of each ( add an extra 1 or 2) and weigh them then you can just do it by weight

Are the stainless steel bolts not really bad for the body work because of the electric corrosion. Somebody in UK is selling this for years but I thought I heard bad stories after some years. The bolts are ok but it seems the aluminum will corrode much faster.

You are referring to the galvanic series - a list of metals ordered by likelihood of galvanic corrosion. At one end are the more noble metals, which suffer least from corrosion: gold, platinum, nickel, stainless steel, etc. At the other end are the base metals. Zinc and cadmium are among the base metals and are therefore used as sacrificial plating for fasteners.

The further apart in the galvanic series two metals are, the more the corrosive effect will be of the noble metal on the base, and yes, stainless steel and aluminum are at opposite ends of the series.

There are two things which moderate the bad news somewhat. First, on our trucks the aluminum is mostly painted, which makes a big difference. Second, corrosion happens very slowly if the source of moisture is just rain. Moisture and salt combined are the real threat, and those with trucks near the coast, or where roads are heavily salted, should take the appropriate precautions.

Given all this, why would one choose stainless fasteners? Mostly, I would say, it is for looks. Not just because it's nice to have shiny fasteners, but because it's no fun to have rusty corroded fasteners. Looks aside, it probably makes more sense to replace fasteners that are rusty or for which their protective plating has already sacrificed itself with similar galvanized or cad plated hardware than to use stainless. Cadmium and zinc are immediately adjacent to aluminum on the galvanic series, and so the corrosive effect would be relatively small.

Also it should be noted that stainless fasteners should not be used in place of graded bolts and screws unless the stainless hardware is similarly graded.

I'm not trying to criticize those who want stainless hardware. I want it too. But we should have all the facts going in.

All this, of course, IMHO.

Good news, McMaster-Carr is finally sending through some of the backordered components. It now appears that I'll get a large shipment on Monday, and the last the following Tuesday (26th). The kits are assembled save these last pieces, so realistically they should ship out on approximately the 27th. For the locals, we can start arranging pickup after that.

I'll continue to update as this (finally) comes together.
Tony
